PSA: Couscous is not Israeli. Israel was founded less than 70 years ago and Couscous is a few centuries older than that #foodcolonialism
"Israeli couscous" is literally a variety of grain food invented at the behest of the state of Israel in the middle of the 20th century. Traditional couscous, which has been around for a very long time is not labeled as "Israeli couscous;" that label is only for the pearl-type grain product called such because it resembles a very large couscous, which, again, is a very recent invention.
Also important to note (for the OP and others reblogging this uncritically) that not only was ptitim invented at behest of the government, it was invented in order to help feed the mass influx of immigrants from Jewish communities in the Middle East/North Africa, who were fleeing anti-Semitic persecution. Mizrahi Jews were accustomed to rice as a staple, which they didn’t have (austerity period), so Israeli couscous was invented to resemble rice.
So it’s not just a case of greedy Zionists gentrifying food for kicks.
If you can call yourself anything you want then what does our movement mean? This is where identity politics has gotten us; it’s gotten us to this ridiculous point where you can basically partner with every misogynist in the world, but because you’ve got a vagina, you can argue you’re a feminist.
I…I really need my fellow bi women to stop comparing lesbians to straight people. We can’t just lump the two together and claim that both groups enjoy the same privilege with regard to sexual orientation. It is literally impossible for lesbians to be privileged over us…
